Uh....wow. Thank you.

I'm floored.

We had a record 736 people come out to this year's CSTS Boston and we raised an astonishing $6735.00 for Equality Now.

In addition, we collected over 1,500 lbs. of food for the Greater Boston Food Bank.

We not only succeeded our total from last year....we more than DOUBLED IT!!! Thank you to not only everyone who came out but to everyone that helped out.

It's amazing that our little show which got almost no traditional media advertisement and relied solely on word of mouth, flyers and web site posts.

We got 736 people to come out AT MIDNIGHT to see something they can see for free on the web and a movie that most patrons already have in their DVD collection.

Again I am floored by the support and generosity of everyone that was a part of this from the Coolidge Corner Theater to all the people that came and sang and laughed and had a great time.

The one question I was asked again and again those night was "Will we do this again next year?"

Yup.


Thank you.

Yay! And thanks to the NE Browncoats for organizing. All your hard work makes it easy for us to come out and see a movie we love, meet other browncoats and raise money for charity. See you next year!

This was my first CSTS showing, and I had no idea what to expect. What I found was a perfect blend of well-organized event and fun-filled fanfest. Kudos, Browncoats, and the Coolidge Corner Theater: Take a bow! My friends and I will be back next year.

The Greater Boston Food Bank thanks everyone for the food. The need is up because of the bad economy, so this donation is much needed and highly appreciated.
